Diverse eBooks for Early Readers

Written by // Emily Rozmus Tuesday, 29 September 2020

Classic childhood books capture the joy and freedom of play and imagination. The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats is one of those. This award-winning book tells the story of Peter and the adventures he has on a snowy day. Readers young and old can imagine the red snow-suited figure of a young boy playing in the wintry city. Many will also remember that Peter is an African-American child, and recognize that childhood delights are not determined by race, location, or gender. Everyone has fun in the snow.

Written by // Emily Rozmus Friday, 16 August 2019

INFOhio starts planning for the new school year in May. As schools wind down and clean out classrooms and lockers, we are getting ready for our busiest time of the year. We prepare for the needs of teachers, and implement what we have learned from research, feedback, and user advocacy. Our goal is to transform instruction to impact learning—whether it is face-to-face, online, individual, group, adult, child, or adolescent.

Reading on the Screen: Why Supporting Digital Natives Matters!

Written by // Emily Rozmus Wednesday, 13 December 2017

Today's digital natives are primarily "tech comfy." Teens may need to show adults how to use SnapChat, but age and experience help adults know more about how to evaluate the content on this platform and other digital spaces.

In order to create critical thinkers who are able to comprehend, analyze, and evaluate digital content, educators must be intentional in preparing  students for 21st century learning. That includes reading content on the screen from a variety of sources—blogs, social media posts, databases, articles, and forums.

Field Days, Talent Shows, and Class Picnics - Oh My! or How to Learn and Have Fun During the Last Weeks of School, Part 2

Written by // Emily Rozmus Wednesday, 24 May 2017

Friday's post on how to keep calm, cool, and collected during the last days of school provided an example of how to implement Camp INFOhio into your classroom during the last weeks before summer break. The goal is to keep kids engaged, learning, and interested. Another resource available at no cost from INFOhio is IWonder. This student site is a collection of websites chosen by educators. The sites are categorized by asking students questions such as "Do You Want to Learn More About Technology?" and "Do You Want Help with a Project?" Students can browse to find a topic that interests them, and drill down to find specific websites where they can learn, play, and explore. Of course, one way to achieve part of the goal set is to allow the students to do just that—browse to learn, play, and explore. Without a plan of action, however, students may not be as engaged. And without engagement, well, we all know what happens in a classroom where students are not actively invested and interested!

Field Days, Talent Shows, and Class Picnics - Oh My! or How to Learn and Have Fun During the Last Weeks of School

Written by // Emily Rozmus Friday, 19 May 2017

The classroom is packed up, with bare walls and stacked-up textbooks. Students are eager to help clean and sort, preparing for the end of the school year. The teacher frantically finds activities to keep the class busy, and when all else fails, turns to a movie, the lights turned off, the room cooler without a fluorescent glare. Tomorrow is Field Day, and the temperature is sure to be high. The next day is the class picnic, and after that, the doors close for good on this school year. 

Summer Reading—Teacher Style

Written by // Emily Rozmus Monday, 10 April 2017

It's amazing to think that it is April, and for many Ohio teachers, there are only 6-8 weeks left of this school year. Most can still remember the smell of the new crayons or the smiling faces of new students. Many will wonder where the school year has gone. Most will cheer and dream of peace, sleeping in, and sunshine. And because it is April, many educators will also begin to wonder what they can do to further their efficacy, effort, and influence in the classroom for the next school year. They will think back about this year, and ask, "How can I engage my students more?" What approach might work better for teaching this concept?" "Should I consider restructuring my reading program?" That's right—the end of the school year often means it's time for some serious professional development. "Summer is the perfect time to recharge," according this to this article from Educational Leadership about ways that being a better student will lead to being a better teacher. Often districts will have prescribed summer PD, but that doesn't mean there aren't easy options for developing your own PD plan—one that will answer your personal questions and build a better educator based on your needs and expectations. INFOhio can help with that. We like to think of it as Summer Reading—Teacher Style. It's free and all you need is time, some mindfulness, and a device with an Internet connection.
